That Banjo Kazooie Spiritual Successor Is No Longer Happening


Banjo Kazooie series composer Grant Kirkhope has revealed during a Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit that the Banjo Kazooie spiritual successor isn’t happening anymore. Back in September 2012 former Rare employees were going to get together and create a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie and possibly get it funded on Kickstarter as well as put it on a Nintendo Platform. Kirkhope now says that the project fell to bits once the developers got other jobs. Here’s what he had to say.

“The other guys actually had a secret meeting in a pub near Rare and we even got as far as having a character drawn up and a demo level type thing but it all fell to bits,” he stated. “Everyone’s got other jobs etc.”

Well fuck…that sucks. A new Banjo Kazooie type game on a Nintendo system is what everyone wants…
